Energy news updates

Prospect has welcomed news that UK nuclear new-build developer NuGen has signed a deal with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority for the land contract at Moorside, near Sellafield in Cumbria.

Prospect has welcomed the provisional findings of the investigation into the UK energy market conducted by the Competition and Markets Authority.

Prospect has blamed shortsighted government policy for the decision by employee-owned Hatfield Colliery, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire to stop producing coal with immediate effect.

Responding to E.ON's plan to close its gas-fired power station at Killingholme, North Lincolnshire, Prospect has called on the company to do everything possible to support the remaining 22 employees on site.

Prospect, the union for energy professionals, welcomed the news that members at the Killingholme and Brigg power stations have been awarded another 10 months’ work after securing a contract which will delay the planned closure of both plants.
